Propaganda War Continues
Over the last several months America has seen an increase in citizen’s desire to fulfill their civic duty by serving their country. Politicians’ names are beginning to be almost as recognizable as the infamous Mafiosi who are thought to be the ones currently running the country. A self described “political party”, that seems more along the lines of a gang masquerading as politicians, also appears to have emerged and has been trying to make some kind of impact on the political landscape of the country. The Democratic Republican Party, as it is known, is rumored to be run by well known mobster Mr. X through his lackey Bruce Wayne and Wayne’s blood relatives. The Wayne family has attempted to get multiple relatives elected to Governorships and Presidencies but so far each member of the Wayne family lineage that has attempted a campaign has been cut down in a hail of bullets.
It’s been a common theme as of late that supposed “retired” and “reformed” mobsters are attempting come backs in the political realm as a way to escape the wrath of their enemies. Many analysts agree that these “reformed mobsters” had hoped their enemies would be more hesitant to make an attempt on their lives if they were holding public office. This has lead to reports of a multitude of politicians being roughed up or murdered in gangland style killings. Many are unsure if the murders are in relation to the mobsters turned politicians’ views on the country or if they are a result of long standing feuds between the new “politicians” and their former underworld foes, who are some of the most powerful Mafiosi in the country. As a result of the increase in political activity since the beginning of the year, several Governors and Congressman have been killed in rather dramatic fashion. It has been theorized that these murders occurred to clear the way for the underworld’s preferred picks for those positions, not to mention the fact that those who have been killed are self proclaimed “retired mobsters” with ties to very violent people.
Also in the political landscape, a fever has begun to spread across the country in support of a newly arrived citizen and politician who goes by the name of Fapking. Fapking’s loony speeches and uncanny ability to connect with the majority of the citizens of America has catapulted him to the pinnacle of the political world. His zany character and seemingly genuine ability to not take himself seriously has been received very well amongst a great majority of American Citizens and appears to foreshadow a very successful career for the beloved character. It will be interesting to see if Fapking’s star will continue to rise or if it will eventually fizzle out.
Unfortunately, not everything has been so lighthearted. Last month two Governors were assassinated and their killers are still at large. It has been reported that both Governors deaths were ordered by powerful mobster and Barzini Empire Boss LeftyTwoGunz, after consulting with the rest of The Outfit. Chapo “Bane” Guzman, the former leader of the League of Shadows, died while serving as the Governor of Oklahoma. Another former member of the League of Shadows, Obliged, was also killed while serving as Governor of Ohio. It appears that it is no coincidence that these two were targeted, considering their gangland affiliations and their longstanding feud with the current ruling faction of the underworld, The Outfit.
Chapo Guzman had long been the Boss of the terrorist organization known as the League of Shadows, who’s most well known exploits are the mass murders of innocent people who may or may not have had fringe associations with The Outfit families and bosses. It is believed that Guzman continued serving as the Boss of the League of Shadows while he was serving as Governor of Oklahoma. Although his term as Governor was not long, it accurately reflected the character Guzman had been known for. In his time as Governor multiple associates and low level soldiers of the Mancini, Moretti and Barzini families had been murdered in Oklahoma and Guzman reportedly ordered that no investigations were to take place which seemingly indicated Guzman’s involvement in the murders. Guzman had been trying very hard to change his public image and portray himself as a man of the people and a defender of the defenseless during his short term as Governor, however his history of similar sentiments followed by brutal violence left many unconvinced.
Guzman’s entire campaign and term as Governor took place without Guzman ever actually stepping foot into the United States. Until his death, it was not publicly known where Guzman had been hiding or if he was taking his Governorship seriously. Shortly after Guzman’s election as Governor of Oklahoma, a low level associate of his was also elected Governor of another state. Obliged, also known in underworld circles as “The Gofer” (a derogatory term meant to point out the man’s uselessness to his own allies), had been elected Governor of Ohio thanks to reported ballot box stuffing and widespread voter fraud at the hands of the League of Shadows. Obliged’s election seemed to indicate the League of Shadows’ desire to take over the political side of America in an apparent power play against their underworld enemies. Following in the footsteps of his boss, Obliged was also not in the United States during his campaign and at the time of his election. It is believed that both men were together in hiding along with the rest of the League of Shadows organization. Since the downfall of the fabled High Council and the rise of The Outfit, no member of the League has been seen on US soil. Those that have attempted to enter the country were soon found murdered, clearly showing the determination and ability of The Outfit to eradicate their arch enemies.
Because of their own self banishment from the United States, the League had been using pseudonyms to submit propaganda articles that were meant to portray themselves in a brighter light while at the same time using unsubstantiated claims to paint their enemies as the “bad guys.” In the eyes of all Americans, both factions of the underworld are looked upon as the bad guys, considering their propensity for violence and crime, but a recent survey conducted by AM Gallupp shows that roughly 90% of the population prefers the leadership of The Outfit over the scare tactics of The League of Shadows. The League had also reportedly teamed up with the DRP Gang in an effort to help both groups delegates get elected, seemingly working in the case of Guzman and Obliged. Recently, however, an article containing blatant attacks on The Outfit may signify a decline in support for the DRP and its leader Mr. X. The infamous mobster known simply as Mr. X, who these days styles himself as a politician and as the editor in chief of the AM Times (a newspaper with no Editor in Chief), made the mistake of signing his name to the aforementioned article containing false information meant to portray The Outfit in a negative light. This clear lack in judgment has reportedly cost the DRP more than half of it’s supporters. When reporters attempted to reach Mr. X to question him on his reasons for knowingly publishing false information Mr. X declined to answer and has since been laying low in hopes that the American Public will soon forget his deception.
It was not long after this article was published that news came in that Bruce Wayne had been found murdered. Wayne, the face of the DRP, had reportedly insulted two Mafia Dons in his bid for election and instead was met by a shotgun blast to the back which killed him instantly. Wayne’s body was discovered a few days later in a creek in Castle Rock, Oregon by four boys, who had ironically been looking to see if they could find a dead body.
A few days later, on April 19, 2015, while sipping a piña colada on the balcony of his run down motel in the Red Light District of Guam, Chapo Guzman was killed by a snipers bullet. The police report states that Guzman having believed he was untouchable had been taunting enemies in the days leading up to his death. It’s been reported that well known American Hit Man Richard “The Ice Man” Kuklinski was spotted leaving the area of the murder not long after the fatal shots were fired. Kuklinski, a well known hit man with close ties to the Barzini Crime Empire, is yet to be brought up on charges. The theory behind the murder of Guzman is that LeftyTwogunz, Ricardo “Ric” Barzini, Gunnz and Mr. Texas (the ruling panel of Barzini) had given Kuklinski the task of silencing Guzman once and for all. Underworld sources report that Kuklinski arrived in Guam early on the 19th and was quickly taxied to the empty warehouse across the street from the motel where Guzman was reported to be staying. Kuklinski climbed the outside fire escape to the roof of the warehouse and got himself in position facing the front of the motel. Just as Kuklinski had gotten himself comfortable, he noticed a familiar looking tiny man appear from behind one of the motel room doors. The man was holding a lawn chair and what had appeared to be a blender containing Piña Colada mix. As the man sat down and poured himself a drink, Kuklinski pointed his .50 caliber rifle at the man. Through the scope Kuklinski was able to 100% verify that the man he was targeting was indeed Chapo Guzman. As Guzman lifted his glass to his lips to take a sip he suddenly heard a crack in the distance. A split second later, Guzman’s head exploded spraying blood and brain matter all over the wall and door behind him.
A woman let out a loud shriek and a crowd of people ran towards the slain mobster/politician to get a better look at the gory scene. During the commotion, Kuklinski slipped out of the area and quickly made his way back to the airport to head back to the States. By the time Kuklinski landed news of the killing had reached the rest of the world and Kuklinski had a missed call from LeftyTwoGunz. Kuklinski quickly dialed Lefty’s number and when he heard him pick up just simply said “It’s done.” Lefty seemed cautiously optimistic, “You Sure? I’ve killed this man before only to see him pop up again two weeks later,” Lefty said with a chuckle. Laughing, Kuklinski replied, “When you see the pictures you’ll see what I mean.” And with that Lefty then congratulated Kuklinski on a job well done and told him to keep his phone nearby as he would be called upon again soon when Obliged was located.
Almost a week later Kuklinski’s phone rang and when he answered all he heard was “Mariana Islands,” and then the call ended. Lefty had told Kuklinski that when they found Obliged he would be contacted so Kuklinski was able to put two and two together and realized that he needed to move quickly to make sure he got the job done. Kuklinski arrived in the Mariana Islands on April 25, 2015. Obliged owned a residence near the airport and Kuklinski already had someone staking it out to make sure Obliged was home. When Kuklinski called his contact to make sure things were a go, he got the answer he wanted to hear. Kuklinski quickly made his way over to Obliged’s residence and crept in through the back window. The residence was more a shack than a house and had missing floor boards and no latches on the windows, making entry rather easy. Obliged also had no bodyguards on duty thinking he was safe in his tropical hideaway, he was in his bedroom taking a shower when Kuklinski found him. The shower curtain was a simple clear piece of plastic and when Kuklisnki finally set his eyes on Obliged he couldn’t help but laugh at the Governor’s lack of….shower room. Kuklinski quickly screwed a suppressor onto the muzzle of his 9mm Beretta and then fired three shots into Obliged’s legs causing him to crumble to the shower floor. Obliged had not even realized Kuklinski was in the house with him…and he never would. While Obliged was face down screaming in agony, Kuklinski walked up to him and pumped three more shots into the back of Obliged’s head. Kuklinski then calmly turned and walked out of the room to the front door and left the house. As he made it into the front yard he unscrewed the suppressor and left the gun at the scene of the crime to be found with the corpse.
Kuklinski was back in the States within a few hours and quickly called up his employer, LeftyTwoGunz. “That’s two of two, let me know when you’ll need me again,” Kuklinski said to Lefty with a smile. “Thanks again,” Lefty replied and both men ended the call. In a matter of a week two members of the League of Shadows had been gunned down, including its founder and leader. There have been rumors that Benny Noodles has resurfaced from his disappearance in an attempt to be the new leader of the League of Shadows, however it’s been reported that the League’s members have had mixed reviews about this.
For now it most certainly appears that the League of Shadows has been dealt a crippling blow and many believe they will not be able to recuperate from this one. We will continue to keep you in the loop on any developments related to this story or the emergence of many political hopefuls. Contrary to the view of a select few reporters, it seems the American Mafia and America in general are experiencing a highly prosperous period of time. The only question is how long will it last? Stay tuned to find out. Until next time America, keep your heads low and your necks on a swivel. Stay safe out there.
